Can someone explain to me how were they able to modify the BFG flash GUI's so deeply without the source files?

It's all in C++ code. Flash is just art, placeholders so to speak. Everything is driven by C++.

Flash is actually very easily decompiled. The previous poster is also correct as the logic driving all the Flash stuff is actually C++.
